Gas prices in March

Regular gas cost $4.06 per gallon in Hailey on Monday, on par with the national average. The last time Idaho’s average gas prices eclipsed $4 per gallon was in the summer of 2008, according to the AAA.

As the Russia-Ukraine war continues to drive crude oil prices higher, gas prices in the Wood River Valley and much of the country have ticked up between $0.42 and $0.50 per gallon in the span of a week, causing major sticker shock at the pump.

At stations in Hailey, gas prices Monday were $4.06 for unleaded, 85 octane gasoline, $4.46 for plus-grade, 87 octane gasoline and $4.86 for premium-grade, 91 octane. Prices were about 50 cents higher at Warm Springs Base Camp in Ketchum: $4.60 for regular unleaded, $5.00 for plus-grade and $5.40 for premium.

The national average for regular gas was $4.06 per gallon on Monday, up from $3.61 per gallon a week earlier, Feb. 28, according to the American Automobile Association.
